Our 8th graders have been hard at work on two action civics projects this fall. One class decided to focus on rising teen suicide rates and the other worked on distracted driving (specifically texting while driving). Their goals are to increase the state budget for suicide awareness and prevention programs in school, and pass a hands-free phone law in Massachusetts. You will find the links to their PSA videos below.

The months of April through November represent tick season in Massachusetts. Some ticks, like the black-legged tick, known also as the deer tick, can carry harmful germs that can cause diseases such as Lyme disease and Powassan virus disease.
